Ashamnu (אָשִׁמנוּ, we have transgressed) is the beginning of a penitential confession, written in Hebrew characters, and offered on the Day of Atonement. It runs thus:

" We have trespassed; we have dealt treacherously; we have stolen; we have spoken slander; we have committed iniquity; and have done wickedly; we have acted presumptuously; we have committed violence; we have framed falsehood; we have counselled evil; we have uttered lies; we have scorned; we have rebelled: we have blasphemed; we have revolted; we have acted perversely;. we have transgressed; we have- oppressed; we have been stiff-necked; we have acted wickedly; we have corrupted i we have done abominably; we have gone astray, and have caused others to err; we have turned aside from thy excellent precepts and institutions, and which hath not profited us: but thou art just concerning all that is come upon us; for thou hast dealt most truly, but we have done wickedly." (B.P.) .
